The Franklin Education Association has scheduled a “cash mob” for Tuesday, May 6, at Edwins, 341 West Central St., Franklin.
The educators chose Teacher Appreciation Day to stage their own bit of local economic stimulus.
“We get a lot of support from parents, students and others in the community. We appreciate knowing that our work is valued, and we think a cash mob is one way of saying ‘thank you’ and giving back to the town,” said FEA President Chandler Creedon.
Cash mobs have become popular vehicles for publicly supporting locally owned businesses. The “mob” selects a shop or business and then arrives en masse, with each member committed to spending at least a certain amount of money agreed upon by the group.
FEA members plan to spend at least $20 each during their visit to Edwins, which is locally owned and specializes in gifts, jewelry and home décor.

3:30 to 4:30 p.m., Tuesday, May 6
